About the Show
Driven by nostalgia, Carrion wanders an archaeological site, uncovering objects. As the journey unfolds, startling new truths are revealed about simulation, consumption and worship in an age of excess and acceleration. What does it mean to be human, at a time when our destructive influence is redefining nature itself?
Drawing on queer and ancestral mythologies, Carrion collides distant past with far future, heralding the changes that lie waiting inside us. Mesmerising and tender, elemental and fantastical, Carrion is a rite, a birth, a speculation – morphing the ‘natural’ in a unique vision of what performance can be.
